9 boys. Ages 7-11. What were we thinking, right?
We've done sleepovers for birthdays twice before for Jackson. Cameron has wanted to have one forever, but he was just always too young and I didn't know if the other kids' parents would want their boys spending the night out either.
Well, his day had finally arrived.
He wanted a Miami Heat basketball party. I was pretty happy with invitations I found on pinterest.
The rest of the decorations revolved around the Heat colors : orange, red, and black. And basketball (which was fitting since all the boys invited were on his basketball team).
Lucky for us, it was a beautiful Spring day, which is something we very rarely get for Cameron's birthday (which is actually not for another week). The boys had baseball practice earlier that day. Cameron, Bella & I took a trip to Party City for some last minute items.
Cameron picked out his candles. He liked it because, not only was it his name, but there are 7 letters in his name AND he is turning 7! Perfect, right?
Of course, the boys started off the party with a game of basketball.
We moved the party inside for some pizza, cupcakes, and Orange Crush.
Then, Daddy hosted his favorite - Nerf Gun Wars. The boys were assigned teams by picking names out of a hat, and they had the entire house as their arena. They had a blast, and played for hours.
Breakfast was pancakes and cinnamon rolls. Yes, more sugar.
The next day, we had our first Cannons Sunday league baseball game. The weather wasn't so nice, and the boys were obviously pretty tired. But it was such a great memory for Cameron and the boys. I think they really enjoyed themselves. Such a great group of kids. I hope they stay close for years to come.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, wine, video games, and bath time. I started this blog because I am passionate about photography and journaling, and because I wanted a place to write it all down, to rememeber little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
